Certainly! The scope of speech therapy extends beyond just verbal communication. Speech therapists address various areas of communication, including feeding and swallowing. Communication includes several aspects, such as pronunciation, fluency, language, social skills, cognitive abilities, literacy, and hearing.
Among adults, we commonly provide therapy for feeding and swallowing difficulties, stuttering, and communication and speech loss caused by brain injuries.
In children, more common speech impediments include articulation delays, stuttering, language delays, social communication difficulties, and literacy delays. We also work with children with various disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorders.
Many speech delays and disorders require speech therapy interventions to be resolved. It’s uncommon for disorders to disappear on their own. The duration of treatment can differ depending on the type of disorder. Some difficulties may be resolved in a few months, while others may need ongoing therapy for several years.
In some cases, clients are provided with home therapy activities to complete regularly between sessions to ensure the program’s and intervention’s success. We periodically review goals in consultation with clients and their families or carers.
Speech pathologists and speech therapists are used interchangeably to refer to professionals who work with individuals to diagnose, treat and prevent communication and swallowing disorders.
In Australia, the commonly used terms are speech pathologist, speech-language pathologist (SLP), speech therapist, and sometimes “speeches” for short.
These professionals work closely with their clients to develop individualised treatment plans to improve their communication and swallowing abilities.
